    Patio Dining at Redrock Canyon Grill in OKC

    I like the food at Redrock, but I love the patio experience. It's one of several restaurants overlooking Lake Hefner, the picturesque horizon dotted with summer sailboats. It stands above the rest because of the exquisitely relaxing experience, perfect for a romantic evening or a comforting Sunday brunch. Live music can often be found, and the fire is wonderful, particularly at night.

    Any of the restaurants along the beautiful Bricktown canal would be a good choice, of course, but I love the New Orleans-style selection at Jazmo'z Bourbon Street Cafe. The patio area is covered, located right down along the canal, and you get a good view of both the passing water taxis and the horse-drawn carriages on Oklahoma Avenue above.

    If you have to settle for a view of a city street, you can't get much better than West.  I loved the patio when it was Nonna's, and it actually may even be better now.  The large, open-air seating area stretches around the restaurant and overlooks the Bricktown streets below.

    Talk about a fun spot and a great atmosphere. Sample the unique and terrific Brazilian specialties while you enjoy the live music, and then head to the deck of the upstairs Club Bossa Nova. Exotic drinks accompany a nice view of the surrounding Midtown area with the downtown skyline just in the distance.

     What a transformation Uptown NW 23rd has had in recent years.  There are many wonderful restaurants with patios along the stretch -   Guernsey Park, Cheever's and Pizza 23, just to name a few.  For something a little bit different, head to the rooftop bar at Guyutes.  It's a great, active space to enjoy the elevated street food.

    I absolutely love the large rooftop patio at Packard's New American Kitchen in Midtown.  The view is excellent, and the entire area can be reserved for a private party.

    Oklahoma City's Paseo Arts District is unique and has a great vibe.  I find the patio area quite relaxing at Paseo Grill as I enjoy a drink or some of their very good food.

    I've always been a Bellini's fan, loving the Italian food and brickoven pizzas. The patio seating experience is also something that needs to be mentioned. It wraps around the restaurant and overlooks the Waterford complex's duck pond, a simple and serene view within the surrounding hotel and office complex area. Those working in the area already know this to be a great place to relax and dine outside at the end of a long day.
